According to MDA, 50 people fainted while fasting and 16 people required resuscitation. In addition, 102 pregnant women were taken to hospitals for delivery and 162 children from non-religious damilies were treated for injuries related to bicycling, skateboarding and roller-skating on the empty streets – acitivities not quite in the Yom Kippur spirit.

On Sunday, prior to the beginning of the fast, 38 people were hurt in 18 traffic accidents across the country.
